John Albasiny in Pin Cushion for BFI

John Albasiny appeared in the role of Mr Waters in the BFI's first executively produced feature film, Pin Cushion. Written and directed by Deborah Haywood and produced by Gavin Humphries with Maggie Monteith of Dignity Film Finance, the film is a dark, all-female fairy-tale set against the backdrop of the British working-class suburbs.

The film featured in the 2017 Venice Film Festival's Venice Critic's Week line-up as the opening film in the out-of-competition special events.
